Dream about fighting an old man signals some hidden, mysterious aspect of yourself. You are creating your own opportunities. You are not sure how to express yourself. It symbolises your need to belong and to fit in to a larger group. You are neglecting aspects of your own self.
Fighting an old man dream draws attention to upon your real life and how you are watching life pass you by, instead of participating in it. You are being forced into submission or obedience. Your own political views will strongly influence your behaviors. Your dream is a harbinger for the steps you need to take toward your goals. Perhaps you are emotionally detached or feel you are an outcast of society.
